A New Surprise for the Scientists

Birds too can communicate and not just la, la, la, la, la.

Great tits use different alarm calls for different predators, according to a scientist in Japan.

The researcher analysed the birds’ calls and found they made “jar” sounds for snakes and “chicka” sounds for crows and martens.

This, he says, is the first demonstration birds can communicate vocally about the type of predator threatening them.
